Fantastic update may finally help Google’s music app become a real Spotify rival

The new Listen Now page — thanks to Google’s recent acquisition of Songza — will allow anyone using the feature on their device to stream curated playlists that match up to their activities based on what time of the day it is. If you’re lifting heavy weights at the gym, you may want a hard rock playlist. If you want some relaxing music before bed, you can choose something softer. The page also includes cards that promote new music and stations that you haven’t discovered yet based on your interests. […] The new redesign is available today for download in all 45 Play Music countries. – Jeff Sorensen,BGR

Twitter launches in-app music streaming service

Twitter has launched an in-app audio streaming service that will allow users to play music or podcasts directly from their timelines, in the hope that users will spend more time on its service. […] Audio Card was made in partnership with Germany audio streaming service SoundCloud. Users can listen to audio files from some of SoundCloud’s partners that tweet such as music by popular Dj David Guetta or podcasts from the White House. […] Twitter has also got iTunes on board so users can listen to music in their timeline then be transferred to Apple’s service to buy the song. Rock band the Foo Fighters officially launched their new single “Something From Nothing” on Audio Card. […] This is not Twitter’s first foray into the music space. Last year, it released a standalone app known as #Music aimed to help users discover songs by harnessing tweets around particular artists and tracks. The app was officially pulled in March due to lack of demand. – Arjun Kharpal,CNBC
